With the blessing of the Estate of Healey Willan and in collaboration with the Canadian Music Centre, Canadian Art Song Project has completed and released 22 songs that were not previously published*. Artistic Directors Lawrence Wiliford and Steven Philcox were joined by collaborative pianist Helen Becqué to edit the two volumes of songs.
Many of the songs included in these collections are ideal for young University students whereas others will challenge advanced singers.
We are very excited about these two collections and hope that they help bring Willan’s songs back into public awareness.
Be sure to contact the Canadian Music Centre to purchase your copy of these scores!
*To Music was published posthumously in a 1983 issue of Canadian Musical Heritage
